Tomorrow shall be my dancing day

David Willcocks

Tomorrow shall be my dancing day;
I would my true love did so chance
To see the legend of my play,
To call my true love to my dance:
Sing, oh! my love, oh! my love, my love, my love,
This have I done for my true love

Then was I born of a virgin pure,
Of her I took fleshly substance
Thus was I knit to man's nature
To call my true love to my dance:
Sing, oh! my love, oh! my love, my love, my love,
This have I done for my true love

In a manger laid, and wrapped I was
So very poor, this was my chance
Betwixt an ox and a silly poor ass
To call my true love to my dance:
Sing, oh! my love, oh! my love, my love, my love,
This have I done for my true love

Tomorrow shall be my dancing day;
I would my true love did so chance
To see the legend of my play,
To call my true love to my dance:
Sing, oh! my love, oh! my love, my love, my love,
This have I done for my true love
